Spice Cake is a showy, alert donkey who's always waiting to please you and interact with whoever comes out the back door of the house. We love her dark red color, the roaning on her face, and her sleek, soft, loooooong ears. She leads like a dream, and so is a fun one to take on a walk. Her gait is sophisticated and deliberate, and she's got a personality to match. Spice Cake settles in foal easily, and foals just as naturally. She's a fantastic mother and does a phenomenal job socializing her young ones. All of her foals exhibit Spice Cake's exceptional disposition. Spice Cake is a joy to have here in every regard, and we hope to give her the chance to produce many top-quality donkeys at our farm.

Eleanor exudes power and grace. We had the honor of bringing her into our breeding herd in early 2020 after searching the Midwest for  a stunning black jennet with a strong pedigree. Our intention is that her bloodlines will add drafty anatomical integrity and richness to the perfect conformity that our jacks bring to the stable. Seeing her coal-black frame in my chartreuse pasture brings me delight every time I gaze at the pasture.

TBG update 2018 left side_edited.jpg


(a.k.a. TBG)

Black Jennet with Light Points

MDR# on file

Height: 29" 

Birth: July 28, 2015 in Sanger, Texas

Sire:  Circle C Victory (29.75" Black) - Blackie, Alberta, Canada

          Grandsire: MGF Future Link (32" Black w/ cross) - Gurley, Nebraska

          Granddam: Circle C Victoria's Secret (33.5" Black)

Dam: Designer Donkeys' Precious (31" Grey-Dun) - Cleburne, Texas 

          Grandsire: Cirlce C Obsession (32.5" Black w/cross) - Blackie, Alberta, Canada [WORLD CHAMPION JACK]

          Granddam: LN Dee Shady Side (31.5" Grey-Dun) - Corwith, Iowa

TBG is small and gentle, trustworthy and companionable. Her alert and responsive temperament have made her easy to work with, and because of that, she's taken up a side-hustle of public appearances. In 2018, she served as a therapy animal for children who experienced the loss of a loved one. Later that summer, TBG spent several hours at our local Parish Picnic & Family Festival, where her adorableness was admired by teens, children, parents, nuns, and priests. Show potential coupled with black-as-midnight color are great assets for this young jennet. 


Frosted Spotted White Jennet (WOOLY)

Height: 31.5"

Birth: July 25, 2000 in Gurley, Nebraska

Sire: CP's Harry (31" Grey-Dun) - DeWitt, Nebraska

         Grandsire: Rosebud II

         Granddam: Untraced

Dam: MGF Venus White Raven (33.75" FSW White) - Gurley, Nebraska

          Grandsire: GP Peanut (32.5" Brown & White Spotted) - Lockney, TX

          Granddam: MGF Venus Lenore (33" Grey-Dun) - Gurley, Nebraska

Venus Eyes Only is a lovely, polite donkey that we love seeing out in the pasture. Our kids while away the hours brushing that puffy, wooly coat of hers. She was born with this desirable wooly trait as the fruit of the hard work done at the McRoberts Game Farm, which selected for it. Eyes Only has produced several wooly foals in her career. She possesses the "I'll go where you go" disposition that I love to observe in a donkey, and is happy to let young kids dote on her. This fluffy jennet hangs out with her buddy Anton (they're practically inseparable), but is happy to lend a hoof as "midwife" when foals are on their way! 

Update: After a long and fulfilling farm life, the lovely Eyes Only died suddenly and unexpectedly in November 2017. We regret her passing.
